Are you able to use your knowledge to your advantage if you played on the machines?

The payout of the game can be changed however you have to open the machine and it requires elevated access at the game level. Also, casinos usually have some sort of access log for each machine, require two people from separate departments to access certain parts of the machine (dual key), and cameras that cover the entire slot floor. If he did change the payout of a game the casino would find out pretty quickly. There is no special sequence of buttons to press to make the game pay out more.

There have bee instances in the past where bugs were discovered and used to a players advantage.

Good reply. On top of it there jurisdictional limits the games can be set to. Even with setting it to the highest payout the game is still programmed to make money.

Remember folks, 90% payout in the long run means it's still making money for the house. Period.

I'm not allowed to play the machines at the casino I work for. But even if I could, there's no magical way to tell if a game is going to hit or not. It's all about being in the right place at the right time.

I dunno, I've gone to a native owned casino with my uncle 3 times now, and he wins eveytime based on a pattern of which machine had the last win (each machine has a light on top that illuminates on payout).

I dont know what pattern he sees, but whenever he sees that light go off on one, he knows which one is going to payout next.

You wouldnt believe it unless you went with him and saw it.
